    I ran push/pull on my rig with 39.5 IROKs and about 5 inches of lift, totally sucked. Could not turn at all at times.

    Now I have push/pull plus a 2" ram assist. It goes where I want it to now without a choice in the matter. I didn't go crossover because it is a waste of money for my rig since it won't be going any higher. With that lift you'll definitely need crossover IMO to be safe.
